About 5 blocks from my house is somebody who has thes flowers by their driveway and they are HUGE! They are about 10 inches in diameter. They had white ones and pink onesI took this closeup shots at sunset using flash from about 5 feet away and zoomed way in. Can anybody guess whatthese arefrom just the closeups? I have no idea what they're called.

I don't know. I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to flowers! They are pretty impressive, though. I'll post a pic of the whole flower later if nobody can identify for sure what they are.

I like the hint of heavenly clouds above the last one.
